    Use my iPad's 3G connection from my PC?

    I'm aware that most iOS tethering conversations go the other way because people have wifi-only iPads and want to access a 3G connection from their iPhones but I want to do something different.

    Can someone tell me if it's possible to allow my notebook to use the iPad like a wifi hotspot?

    There are wifi tethering apps available in the Cydia store if you jailbreak your iPad. As far as I know, jailbreaking is the only way to make that feature available.

    I believe the app is called mywi. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong on that.

    Thanks. I'd read about MyWi but was hoping there's a "legit" way of doing it that wouldn't require jailbreaking. I have nothing against jailbreaking but since there's no untethered jailbreak yet, I wanted to research other options.
